If your notebook computer or PDA is not "wireless ready," you will need to purchase a wireless PC card or wireless USB adapter. These devices send and receive data and connect to the wireless access points that are installed at each Interstate SpeedZone location. The wireless PC card, optional antenna, and USB adapters are available at most TA Travel Stores.

Frequently Asked Questions About Interstate Speedzone WiFi
How can I pay for Interstate SpeedZonesm?
When you get to the Interstate SpeedZone login page you can choose to pay online with a credit card, prepaid card, or redeem your UltraONE Points. Prepaid cards are available at the TA Travel Store for daily, monthly and annual subscriptions!
Which TAs have wireless internet?
All TA and Petro full-service travel centers have Interstate Speedzone. Your account will work at any Interstate SpeedZone WiFi Hotspot, using your selected username and password.
Can I send and receive e-mail?
Yes. Interstate SpeedZone will allow you to send and receive email using any existing email account.
Can I establish a VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection to my office?
Yes. TA SpeedZone will support VPN connections.
Where can I get the best signal?
The Interstate SpeedZone signal should be available throughout the building and parking lot. For best results try to have a clear view of the roof top antennas. We have also installed antennas in most of our restaurants so the signal strength in the restaurant seating areas should be excellent.
How do I know how much time is left on my subscription?
After you login to Interstate SpeedZone by entering your username and password, a window will pop up to tell you how much time is left.
I've connected to the TA wireless network, but when I launch my browser I get the "Page cannot be displayed" message.
This sometimes happens when your notebook has not been assigned a temporary IP address. Sending a new request to the access point can sometimes fix this. Browse to any web site, and click enter. The Interstate SpeedZone login page should then appear.
